There is a strong movement afoot for the Washington Redskins to change their mascot.
Change the Mascot is a grassroots campaign working to educate the public about the damaging effects on Native Americans arising from the continued use of the R-word. This civil and human rights movement has helped reshape the debate surrounding the Washington team’s name and brought the issue to the forefront of social consciousness.
Change the Mascot produced a commercial for the Super Bowl in 2014 with a powerful message and each year since CBS has denied their request to air it during the Super Bowl.
Michael Redhead Champagne, also known as North End MC, is the founder and organizer of AYO! He is a well known public speaker, blogger and community activist.
